JT Mothers Against Diesel Potluck

Perth Square Park

Thursday, August 30, 2012

11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

More diesel trains appear to be coming to the Junction Triangle (JT) as the provincial government rushes to build a rail link to the airport in time for the Pam Am Games in 2015. Frustrated by government’s unwillingness to address the shortcomings in their plan, Mothers of the Junction Triangle are hosting a potluck and taking their concerns directly to Premier Dalton McGuinty.

If you want to see electric trains running on the Georgetown corridor, join us in the park. There will be food, fun for the kids and a special direct line to the Premier’s office where everyone is invited to tell him what you think.

Lots of great things are happening in the Junction Triangle. Schoolyard revitalization and library expansion are underway because people are coming together with a shared purpose and aiming high. We can bring change to public transit in the same way; a shared purpose with the aim of persuading the decision-maker, Dalton McGuinty that electric rail is our choice.

Here's the Number

If you are unable to join us today for the JT Mothers Against Diesel Potluck, you can still support the effort with a call to the Premier. We'll be calling from the Park from 11 a.m. till 1 p.m., but calling him anytime today would be great. If you don't get him on the line (416-325-1941), ask for his voicemail and leave him a message with your concerns about the massive diesel train expansion underway in our neighbourhood. He really needs to get the message that electric trains are our choice.

we used to call him

we used to call him "Stick-Up" when he performed for the kids at the BamBoo Kids Raves
